Common Core Standards

Common Core is NOT a curriculum, but

Standards drive curriculum and

Standards drive assessment

“One Size Fits All” format

Slide4

Who’s Behind Common Core?

Achieve, Inc.National Governor’s AssociationCouncil of Chief State School OfficersMajor funding by Gates Foundation - $100+ million

NOT state led – these are trade associations based in DC

Slide5

Common Core

National K-12 content standards for Math and English Language Arts

Misleading –

promoted as

not

a curriculum

Standards

dictate content

Curriculum adds the details

States must adhere word for word to the standards

May only add up to 15% in any area

Two Consortiums to choose from: Smarter Balance (Washington selected)

PARCC

Testing = multiple times each year per student

All computer-based

NEA gave $360M initially to testing consortiums – when it’s spent, states pick up the tab

Slide6

A National Curriculum

Violates 3 Federal Statutes

General Education Provision Act

copywrited

Decentralize Education!

Chief Justice John Roberts:

States should

“defend their prerogatives by adopting ‘the simple expedient of not yielding’ to federal blandishments when they do not want to embrace the federal policies as their own. The States are separate and independent sovereigns. Sometimes they have to act like it.”
